Studded Sandals, Denim Shorts and Navy Tops

I have been wearing these Rebecca Minkoff studded gladiator sandals so much since I bought them. Living in Australia can mean high shipping charges when ordering from overseas. The plus side is that when sites like Rebecca Minkoff, Shopbop and Asos have end of season sales, it's just the start of that season here. Picking up these sandals in spring meant getting them at the autumn sale price in the US.

While the gold colour I wanted was sold out, I'm pleased I found the blush pair as they go with everything. Especially denim shorts!

What I wore:

Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere | AwayFromTheBlue
SunglassesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop
TopAtmos & Here Arlene wrap top in navy (similar that ships internationally)
ShortsJeanswest Trinity Bermuda denim shorts (currently on sale, 50% off shorts!)
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush (on sale!)
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

This was a little bit of a hectic morning! Had to go to out to the depot near the airport to pick up a parcel, mail more things at the post office and stop by an event to see a friend as well as picking up a few essentials. Was a bit tired out by the end of it and considered having an afternoon nap with the boys...

Wanted a nice simple outfit, this was perfect. This wrap top is so easy to breastfeed in as you just unsnap the button holding the two wrap pieces together. It met the style challenge for the day too.

Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, navy wrap top, bermuda denim shorts, studded sandals, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag.

BagBalenciaga Day bag in 2005 magenta (20% off with code '2017')

Why I wore it:

Another navy top! In contrast to the outfit above, I picked this for what was meant to be a much quieter day. Ran a few errands in the morning and had a friend over in the afternoon. It was nice to catch up and relax until the day got much crazier with another unexpected trip to the hospital for Baby Boy.

This is the first time I wore the shirt I picked up in the Jeanswest Cyber Monday sale before my 6 months no shopping challenge started in January. It took a while to wear it because I was in hospital with Baby Boy half of December. It's a slightly stiffer material so I was fussing with how it sat a few times during the day, don't think it worked too well with the half-tuck into the shorts. I've worn it untucked since and liked it better.

I really liked the studded sandals with this, and of course the pop of the magenta bag against the navy. The outfit worked nicely for the style challenges on Instagram, and I think I'll try the half-tuck again at some point with this shirt. Maybe just not with these shorts!

Last worn: printed denim shorts, studded gladiator sandals (above), Balenciaga magenta day bag. First time I've worn the navy shirt as it's a recent purchase.

  1. No wonder you have been wearing these sandals so often! They are simply amazing!

  2. Did you end up taling the nap? I always regret if I didn't... And I never thought about the end of season sales being so convenient for you, that is a plus!

  3. I think those studded sandals are proving to be quite the purchase! I really like how they pop on an overall all navy look. I tend to rock simple outfits in the summer and pair them with a fun sandal. (:

  4. I love the sandals, and although I'm not a bag person, that fuscia bag is awesome! I hope Baby Boy is okay - good vibes to you, Mica.

  5. I never thought about the reversed seasons translating to fabulous sales! While I often indulge in end of season sales, can be gamble, hoping I'm still just as thrilled with it 9 months later. Love those sandals though, the neutral color really is perfect to go with anything.

  6. I'm loving your necklace collection as much as your handbag collection lately! The pom pom one in the first outfit is so cute and the elephant one is so whimsical! I really love the statements they're both making!

  8. Mica, you are so lucky! Our sales are definitely your gain. I saw your tweets around Christmas about the RM sales. Those were some deep discounts.

  9. Oh no I hope Baby Boy is okay!! Sending get well thoughts your way! Those sandals are great, and I agree about the versatility of the blush color--I love it with the pretty bright accents in your second look!

  10. The pair of gold sandals would be nice, but this blush pair looks really cute too! It suits you well <3 And you can definitely wear it with any outfit. Overall, your outfit looks comfy and pretty :) Hope to hear from you soon!
